Łódż and the A2 from there to Warsaw will be more reliable as the whole A2 between Łódż and Warsaw is all open now

The S8 is currently no good for going from Łódż to Warsaw until the part from Róża to DK91 is open to traffic (whenever that will be)

In the german wikipedia stands the wezel lodz Poludnie with the A1 should opened in March 2014? Is that right? I think it can be opened cause the A1 is not finished until that.

No. GDDKiA is planning to open it in March. Maybe they don't open it now because they don't want to spend money on winter maintenance

There are two good possibilities:
1. http://mapa.targeo.pl/Mapa_Polski,27...619eacb6c09aae

2. http://mapa.targeo.pl/Mapa_Polski,28...b0132970890520

Refer to this statistic, not Wikipedia

What is the condition of the closed road? Could we ride on it with snowmobile with 200 km/h? Closed autostrad might be even more fun than frozen lake...

ecoducts

I made an attempt to list all ecoducts across motorways & expressways in Poland. So far I found 71 ecoducts.

Most ecoducts are on A2 and A4 in Western and Southern Poland, but they exist elsewhere as well. The A1 is notably lacking ecoducts, I could only find one, but there is some missing imagery near Włocławek and Łódź. Identifying ecoducts is tricky on motorways which have just begun construction on Google Earth, especially if they didn't make a large clearing in the forest.

I only listed ecoducts which cross over the motorway. Wildlife passages under the motorway are not counted.

Whole list:

EDIT2: Following two items to the list: S8 and S14.

S8: I thought this was one, but it could be a country road http://goo.gl/maps/XR4oq

S10: the viaduct in front has no road across it or connecting to it. http://goo.gl/maps/N50V2

Yes, it is the communal road.

Yes, it is a passage for horses.


PS If you include S16, it would be fitting to add also A18.

@ ChrisZwolle

On the road S8 section 4 between Złoczew and Sieradz, are built two ecoducts for animals. One in km 124 km and 134 second (Złoczew 120 km S8, Sieradz 140 km S8 / New km on S8 after opening Złoczew - 149km Sieradz 169 km)

I know about one ecoduct over a national road (DK5 near Stęszew)
Coordinates: 52.291724,16.732159 (I couldn't post neither link nor picture, post was not going through)
Are there more ecoducts like this on regular DKs?

I'm not sure if anyone has seen Google Maps recently, but there has been big tug back and forth over the last month regarding how to display Polish expressways. Many of the S-routes had originally been colored dark orange (as with roads of similar motorway standard). However, beginning around December, several Google Map Maker editors started to significantly recolor the expressways from dark orange to standard yellow, making them virtually indistinguishable from DK routes. In response, several Polish-based Map Maker editors tried to reverse this, reediting the maps to reflect their higher road standard, but so far, Google Maps has not reversed it.

I think there might be some confusion over Google Map Maker's classification policy. Google lists its high speed road priorities as either being an American-style "freeway" or an "expressway." Many of the Polish-based map editors have argued that the S-routes do classify as a freeway priority, since many are virtually up to motorway standards.

Anyways, I'm by no means a road editing expert, but it was just a bit of a shock to see S8 from the Łącznik Długołęka intersection to Syców change its color overnight, or see S2 around Warsaw be reduced in importance, while S79 still remains as motorway-level dark orange.
